ScummVM 0.6.0 and Flight of the Amazon Queen is Free!

ScummVM 0.6.0 has been released.  It comes with the following improvements:

  • The classic V1 versions of the original LucasArts SCUMM games Maniac Mansion and Zak McKracken and the LucasArts SCUMM game ‘Full Throttle’
  • Broken Sword 1 and Broken Sword 2. Many thanks to Revolution for providing us with the source-code to these games.
  • Support for Flight of the Amazon Queen. Thanks to Steve and John for providing us with the source code to this game, and permitting its release as freeware.

You can download Flight from the Amazon Queen’s from ScummVM’s downloads page. As with last year’s freeware release of Beneath a Steel Sky, it works great in the Dreamcast version! 🙂
